1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I would say a Hawke Sport HD or HD IR would be a good choice for that budget, although the IR's are just starting at that price. I have had a basic Sport HD on my HW95 and it has been a good scope.

    Before that I had a Nikko Mountmaster and the only issue I had with that was the wire reticule came loose and I had to glue it, so probably not a good choice for a FAC rifle.

    Look on the j s . site (www.jsramsbottom.com) they do a few different makes. Nikko Sterling are a fairly good basic scope. I've got a couple myself,their MountMaster series come complete with mounts and .'s prices are very good and so is their service,they pack things very well so no fear of it getting damaged in post.Go for a parallax adjustable (AO)model which I think is better for airgun range,don't have to worry about parallax error.Their also do a Leapers 2-7 x 32 scope which they say is made for FAC spring guns.It's not parallax adj but its parallax is set to 35yds so should good for airgun use,it also has an illuminated reticle.You'll need to buy mounts but it will still come within your price range.

    I've got a Hawke Sport HD 3-9x50 that I am thinking of putting up for sale. I could include butler creek flip up covers and a set of mounts with it. I was going to wait until a bit later after Christmas, but if you are interested let me know and I will pull my finger out!

    This would be ideal. And for the money they have quite clear optics. Airgun rated so will take recoil no problem. £46 brand new with warranty quid. That's why it's not worth buying some secondhand scopes on forums because the seller want's almost new price half the time. Some even sell some of these chinese crappy Leup copies for more than twice what they cost brand new on the bay. But if the buyer is too stupid do do some research well hard luck. You won't go wrong with a Nikko or a Hawke for this type of money.
